APS Solutions for Business incentives help businesses increase energy efficiency and reduce energy use. APS nonresidential customers (including schools, small businesses, industrial facilities and public agencies) can choose energy efficiency measures with rebates for existing building and new construction. Under the Express Solutions Program, schools of any size and businesses with a demand of 100 kW or less can receive incentives covering up to 90% of lighting and refrigeration project costs.
